Easy Ideas for The Elf on the Shelf

Here is what the elves have been up to:

*First day the elves came back they were on the fire place.  They left a note and a bucket of Christmas pajamas for the kids.  The older boys thought this was great.


*Another day the kids found the elves fishing in the kitchen.   My oldest thought this was so funny.


*On this day the boys found Patch & Scout hanging from our lights in the dinning room.  On the table was spelled out, with marshmallows,  BE GOOD.  Both boys liked this. You could have it say be kind or you are special. Spell out what you would like to have the elf say. 


*Here is one of the silly things our elf on the shelf has been up to.  The kids woke up to find that the elves had made a donut snowman for them.  They took tooth picks and used them as arms and nose and then used frosting to add m&m eyes.  The kids loved this.  What fun will they get into next?
